The Philadelphia 76ers announced on Saturday that point guard Michael Carter-Williams is being treated at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania for soreness related to a skin infection on his right knee.

According to a blog post from Jason Wolf of Delaware Online, the bacterial infection is "under control now", and the doctors handling the situation are "narrowing down which one."

While it was clear something was up when the Sixers left Carter-Williams in Philadelphia on Friday, the fact that he's been in the hospital for several days is an interesting development.

Carter-Williams is currently listed as day-to-day.
